  • Posting them at relevant points on an essay

            When writing these visualizations, they should be located at different points of an essay. This is to make them more conspicuous and relevant for the essay. When these infographics are used to visualize a paragraph they should be located on that same paragraph they are illustrating.

This will make the one skimming to just read through the visualizations without even reading through the entire wording of a paragraphs. Though being complete with information, they should cover minimum space within the paragraphs they are explaining. This is to provide of compactness of the essay and avoid using many pages for the essay. The consumption of a few pages also encourages the reader to read through with ease.

  • Link the visualizations to a text

  • Each visualization must have a title, and a figure number which briefly describes its content

           These visualizations must be big enough in size, having a title and a figure number. Such information aids the readers who are scanning and skimming to get a relatively more of the basic information of the essay just from the visualization. This is mandated by the reason that people will always like to see what the graphic is just from the title. Though, the title written should be simple with a few words.

These infograghs should also be appropriate by not being for fun but passing the intended information.

  • Visualizations should come after the text to explain them

              These info graphs should come after the text that is explaining them and not before the text. This is for the purpose of allowing the reader of the essay to first get the information that the text is all about before getting the graphics to add more meaning on the text. This brings about flow of information in the essay thus making it more sequential and orderly. This stimulates the morale of the reader to easily go through such an essay with least time.

  • The source of this visualization should be acknowledged to avoid being accused of plagiarism

             After using these visualizations in an essay, citation becomes necessary to avoid this essay being presumed a mere plagiarism. This can be avoided by acknowledging where it was obtained from and the artist to it.
